One of several big cats I got to see today at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, as part of this month's USS Accord "Meal and a Mission." Several of us met at the East Hill Plaza CTB to convoy up to Syracuse, where we got a snack in the zoo cafe, then explored the zoo. On the way back, we stopped at Doug's Fish Fry for a late lunch.

Parts of the zoo were pretty disappointing to those of us who've experienced bigger zoos. This one seemed pretty limited in its variety and population, which isn't so surprising for a county zoo. But it also seemed that some of the animals weren't really being well groomed, or didn't have nearly enough space.

Particularly disappointing was the fact that the long-anticipated penguin exhibit isn't opening for another week and a half! The penguins are there, but we can't see them yet. They're nervous. :-) And, the bears are on holiday.
